The climate cartel 💰

Jason Isaac: “Restricting financing to American energy producers based on political whims kills good-paying jobs, increases our cost of living, and reduces the capital available to invest in the energy technologies of the future—while giving a leg up to less responsible energy producers. The less energy the United States is free to produce, the more we and our allies are forced to rely on hostile, unstable nations with lax environmental and labor standards. This is harmful not just for energy businesses but also for energy consumers—that means each and every American.” 

“Contrary to the narrative that our environment is bad and getting worse—and that it is all our fault—America is a world leader in environmental protection. We are the only highly populated nation to meet the World Health Organization’s standards for safe air, and we have cut emissions of criteria air pollutants by 77% in the last 50 years…In fact, our air is now so clean it is almost indistinguishable from natural background levels. During the COVID-19 shutdowns, when 40% or more of vehicle traffic was taken off the roads and significant industrial activity slowed, the Texas Public Policy Foundation’sresearch shows there were no meaningful improvements in air quality. Anecdotal stories about the sky supposedly looking bluer do not stand up to the facts—at least in the United States. In fact, in some U.S. cities, the air actually got worse during the early months of the shutdowns.”

Climate Collusion

The Green New Deal is back, but that’s not the only reason we need to hold on to our hats (and our tax dollars). A new bill in the U.S. Senate proposes a “National Climate Bank” — a politically appetizing but environmentally pointless slush fund for green energy projects.

Life:Powered’s Jason Isaac delivered invited testimony before a U.S. Senate subcommittee explaining why a national climate bank would impose a massive cost to taxpayers — but provide no environmental benefits whatsoever. Click here to watch the 5-minute testimony.

Jason Isaac, director of the Life:Powered project, delivered invited testimony about S. 283, the National Climate Bank act, before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Clean Air, Climate, and Nuclear Safety.

The National Climate Bank Act would impose a massive cost to taxpayers and create an uneven regulatory playing field but provide no environmental benefits whatsoever.

Jason Isaac: “Though you wouldn’t know it from most of the media’s apocalyptic headlines, America is a world leader in environmental quality, number one in the world in clean water and far outranking other developed nations in clean air. We are the only highly populated nation to meet the World Health Organization’s safe air standards for particulate matter and have reduced the six main air pollutants by 77% in the last 50 years — all while significantly growing our economy, population, and energy consumption.”
